I found myself, as I often do, window shopping around Target. There are a million things I want from there which is why I take Rob with me. It’s not that he tries to get me to put things back or gives me grief or anything, it’s just that I feel a bit guilty about spending a lot of money on “stuff” when he’s there. And so when we go together I might get a thing or 2 that’s pretty awesome but I don’t go all Target nuts and refit our guest room or something (which totally happened last year).
So when I saw these packages of 6 wooden eggs for $5 on an end cap I looked at them and looked at them. And I picked them up and put them back a few times before I placed them back on the shelf for good all while Rob patiently stood there watching my silent struggle.
So when I decided that I just HAD to have them to make these color blocked Easter eggs I absolutely promise you that I didn’t even go into the store. I handed Rob my list of 3 things and he went into Target and got them. We didn’t have all day, after all. Now I’m not going to pretend like I didn’t go into Michael’s while Mr. Rob was snagging my wooden eggs and spend a good $50 on other kids of “stuff”. :) Eh. Yep.
But at any rate, today I hopped on over to Mom Spark to turn those wooden eggs into something colorblocked, contemporary and pretty darn awesome, if a bit simple, if I do say so myself. Want to make your own? The paint on these suckers bleed like crazy so get over there to find out how to work with that. Color Blocked Wooden Easter Eggs.
